Two Sheriff’s Deputies are shot and a suspect is dead after a 10-hour stand-off. It all started yesterday when a woman called for help with her 22-year-old son. The mother told authorities that she just told her son that she had a restraining order against him … he became angry and took off in her car. The adult son then returned to the mother’s house and deputies tried to talk to him unsuccessfully … the Deputies then tear gassed him and he returned fire … shooting two of the Deputies. The Deputies then got out of the house, leaving the suspect inside, and called for backup.

That’s when the standoff began.

Neighbors were evacuated; the SWAT team came out along with Crisis Negotiators. After many hours of unsuccessful attempts to get the suspect out of the house a robot was sent inside and that’s when they found him dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. One of two injured Deputies has already been released from the hospital the other is still recovering.

And in much lighter news ….

The third annual adult spelling bee is happening tonight at 6. Individuals and company teams will compete in the San Diego Council on Literacy’s contest and proceeds from the event support literacy programs around San Diego.
